Stone Sour is on hiatus, according to guitarist Josh Rand, although new music is currently on his mind

Stone Sour just released a new live album, “Hello, You Bastards: Live in Reno,” and this is the band’s first bit of new music since their 2017 studio album, “Hydrograd.” According to guitarist Josh Rand, there are no immediate plans for Stone Sour to put out a new studio album anytime soon.

“To be honest, the band is on hiatus right now with no timetable on a return,” Rand told Guitar World. “It’s a mixture of needing a break, plus [frontman] Corey [Taylor] wants to do a solo album, so I don’t know when there will be new Stone Sour music.”

Rand also stated that he’s “started writing things,” but he’s not sure what will come of them.

“I haven’t really thought about it because I’ve been working on this live release, plus we have some exciting stuff getting announced next year which I can’t say yet,” Rand added. “But as far as a proper Stone Sour record, I genuinely have no idea when that will happen.”

Taylor has been busy with Slipknot for much of 2019. The band released a new album, “We Are Not Your Kind,” and toured the U.S. on a headlining summer tour.
